Verizon My FiOS app hits Android, due soon on iOS
Verizon on Tuesday unveiled a new, all-encompassing mobile app for its services. My FiOS (currently only on the Android Market) lets those who've bought into more than one piece of the Verizon ecosystem control all of it from a central area. Owners can control home automation and monitoring, schedule and steer the DVR and TV, or manage the home phone.
Some content is also directly viewable from the app itself. The app can serve as a conduit for Verizon's own on-demand movies as well as tap into local content. Those with the home monitoring option can check in on the live camera, Verizon said.
In Android form, My FiOS is intended for smartphones and needs Android 2.1 or up. A version for iOS devices is due by the end of the year.
